Sculpted by sky-piercing, moss-green peaks and lined with vivid turquoise lagoons, sultry French Polynesia is a place to take it slow and experience the warm, laid-back local culture. The islands are surrounded by fringing reefs that create a protected swimming pool of the most intense aqua imaginable, where swimming amongst dolphins, rays, and turtles who inhabit these clear-water coral gardens, really is a dream come true. The only sensible way to travel in this region is by private yacht.
Tranquil beauty thrives in the temperate climate of Fiji. With a total of 333 islands it is home to the third longest barrier reef in the world - that also serves as a whale sanctuary in protecting these migratory species. On the islands of the Mamanucas and Yasawas you’ll find the heavenly heavyweights of beaches that provided cinematic eye candy to films including Cast Away and The Blue Lagoon.
